6 Ways to Overcome the Roadblocks Getting in the Way of Your Results

Make your healthy lifestyle easier by shifting away from the behaviors and mindsets that are blocking you from your goals.

Here is a list of 6 common roadblocks and things you can start doing right now to get the results that matter to you.

🚧 Roadblock #1: Aiming too high, too soon

This is the perfect recipe for failure and frustration.

Goals like shedding 20 pounds in a few weeks or running your first marathon within a couple of months can be daunting and discouraging.

🛣 Instead, set smaller, realistic targets to fuel your long-term progress.


🚧 Roadblock #2: Comparing yourself to others.

It's okay to draw inspiration from others, but allowing their progress or results to define your worth is not okay. Plus, you never know what's going on behind the scenes or what it really took them to get there.

🛣 Your journey is unique, so own it and celebrate your progress.


🚧 Roadblock #3: Over-restricting your diet.

Eliminating foods (and food groups), skipping meals, or obsessing over the scale is discouraging and can lead to cravings, fatigue, and a serious lack of motivation.

🛣 Aim for a balanced, enjoyable eating pattern that supports your health and well-being.


🚧 Roadblock #4: Navigating without a plan.

Not having a plan is like going on a road trip without a map.

🛣 Having a proven game plan to take you from where you are now to where you want to be will save you time and effort. Otherwise, you’re relying on guesswork to reach your goal.


🚧 Roadblock #5: Short-term vision.

Setting a physical aesthetic goal for a vacation or an event is fine, but having a strong and balanced body composition for life is even better.

🛣 Consider your long-term health and avoid the exhausting and harmful cycle of temporary fitness.


Roadblock #6: Isolating yourself.

Everyone needs support. A strong support network and/or a great coach can hold you accountable and help you reach your goals in a more sustainable and enjoyable way.

Having someone in your corner cheering you on – and helping you find the inner strength to step out of your comfort zone is invaluable!

🛣 Instead of trying to do it on your own, reach out for support.

If you need help overcoming any of these six roadblocks, working with a coach can help.
